glacial_queen: (Christmas Food)
So, I'm currently in Virginia, about to attend wizard college starting tomorrow. Would have mentioned this sooner and turned my kids into animals again for it, but all my prep time got eaten up by food poisoning. So last minute announcement and last minute class, sorry!

I'll be returning from Magischola on Sunday and then on Monday I'm whisked away to Cape Cod for a week. There is supposed to be wi-fi there, but also sunshine and beaches, so my availability will be spotty and unpredictable. I'm not animaling anyone so I play haphazardly, but SP is gonna be the name of the game!

Now I'm off to bed because they serve breakfast at the ungodly hour of 7:30 and I need to be there to keep an eye on freshmen to see who I should suggest recruiting to our House.

So, I've been suffering from an advanced case of the dead for about a week now. I'm on the mend, but I'm still spending a lot of time sleeping and very little time doing constructive things like 'thinking' or 'pinging' or much beyond 'not drooling.' Hopefully I'll be able to kick this soon and be back in the swing of things, but for the next few days, at least, I'm probably going to remain Sir-Not-Appearing-On-The-Internet (which is how you know it's serious, omg).

Apologies to anyone I had plans/threads/conversations with. We can pick them up (or not) as you wish, once I'm back and have successfully mastered doing more than that not-drooling thing I mentioned earlier.

So, in about an hour, I'll be getting picked up and driven to the airport where a good friend and I are making our way down to bright (I hope) and sunny (double-hope) Costa Rica. I have been promised at least limited internets (triple-hope), but I have no idea what my availability will be, either in regards to said internets and/or my free time. I have been promised volcanoes, horseback riding, and machete-wielding people who will bring me fresh fruit when I ask, because apparently fresh fruit is a thing when you're staying in Costa Rica.

On a tree plantation.


Anyway, the dazzling [ profile] not_a_parakeet has agreed to snag my links for Friday and hopefully by Monday, I will have a better idea what my availability will be. Until then, I will likely be kinda scarce (as I've been all week, many apologies to people I was threading with. Apparently traveling to Central America for 3 weeks is a big deal if you're immune-compromised, who knew?)

So, yes, I'm off! We'll see if this is the trip I get to cross 'got deported' off my bucket list. [ profile] not_a_parakeet, [ profile] icecoldfrost, you two are in charge of bail money when if I call needing it. AHDDIE, NO USING ALL MY BAIL MONEY FOR COOKIES. AGAIN.

[This rambling, slightly-incoherent post brought to you by the letters O, M, F, and G, many hours of packing and shots, sleep-deprivation, and viewers like you.]

[...Can I get a monkey in Costa Rica? Does Costa Rica even have monkeys? ANYONE WANNA SEE MY MONKEY?!?]

So tomorrow morning, bright and early, I will be undergoing a twelve hour drive up to the land of moose, maple, and metric to visit our own [ profile] furnaceface. Yaaaaay! So far, most of our plans seem to revolve around introducing me to Canadian food (POUTINE STILL SOUNDS WEIRD TO ME, Y'ALL) and making each other read comics, as well as going up and harassing [ profile] hotceltogoth into making delicious foods for us. As such, my availability will probably be a little limited (like, down to 12 hours a day stalking the game from 18 or so) while I wander around Halifax pointing to random buildings and screaming, "YOU'RE WELCOME!"

[ profile] furnaceface has graciously agreed to cover my links for tomorrow and Monday, October 3rd, when I am driving 12 hours home, at which point I'll be back to stalking the game all day with brief breaks to sleep and sometimes eat.

...At least until I go to Costa Rica later in the month, but that's an availability post for another day.

So, my internet went down last night around midnight and isn't back up yet. Our ISP is sending over a repair guy at some time within the next few days to get it fixed. They don't seem to understand that me without the internet is a TRAGEDY that WARRANTS THEIR HIGHEST PRIORITY, GAWD. I tried explaining that Saturday was the newbie picnic*, but even that did not sway their cold and unfeeling hearts.

I am currently over a friend's house stealing their net pet-sitting, but I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to stay over all night just because they have the internet and we don't. Therefore, my availability is going to be random and of short-duration followed by long periods of silent.

Hopefully the tech will arrive soon because, dammit, I HAVE NEEDS. INTERNET NEEDS.

*Okay, I didn't, but I would have if I thought it would get me anywhere.

First and foremost, I need to thank everyone who helped me pull of that gigantic plot. When we started out, I don't think that any of us expected just how huge it would get. But everyone really pitched in and made it far more awesome than I ever could have imagined. So a million, billion thank you's to [ profile] blondecanary, [ profile] brat_intraining (who managed to juggle three characters, hats off to you, Shanie), [ profile] endsthegame, [ profile] icecoldfrost (and many thanks for posting!), [ profile] justwantsquiet, [ profile] life_inshadow (who indulged me by playing two characters, thanks again E), [ profile] longislandiceme, [ profile] momslilassassin, [ profile] not_a_parakeet (another double characters, thank you, hon), [ profile] nothornlessrose, [ profile] trigons_child, and especially [ profile] sorella_vecchia for playing [ profile] glacial_warlord, Karla's cousin Morton.

I also owe thanks to [ profile] divinesurfchick for beta'ing the earlier posts of Karla alone in Kaeleer and making sure that everything made sense.

Thanks also to everyone who read the entire plot--or, at least, didn't murder me for constantly spamming the f-list. Also, thanks to Tracy for picking up the off-island links.

Now that I'm done with the Plot of Doom, Karla's heading back to the island and I'm heading to Mexico for a week. This means that Cindy's going to be turning into a pair of glass slippers (she'll just love that) and Karla will be turning into an Arcerian kitten again. Looks like Fandom's going to make sure she spends a lot of time resting and eating. Folks with modding rights know who they are and I'm off for the tropics, yay!

Please don't kill me

So, I'm leaving Saturday to go 'camping' in New Hampshire, which mostly involves hanging out at a friend's house by the lake. There will be a TV, electricity, and even a sauna, but no internet, which means this is still filed under 'roughing it' in my book.

Karla will be heading out tomorrow morning with Elle and Hinata to see Hayley, and then heading home to Kaeleer for the rest of the weekend. Cindy's off playing spy games in Paris and 21 and 24 will be, uhh, quiet. No surprise there.

I'll be back Tuesday sometime. No lighting the internet on fire without me.

Y'know, unless someone is REALLY WRONG on the internet. Then it's okay.
glacial_queen: (OOC)
Briefly surfacing to say we're experiencing interruptions to our net service due to the thunder storms that have been hitting Worcester all weekend. So if I vanish inexplicably, that's probably what happened.

I'll pick up threads when internet it back reliably.

On the other hand, t-storms are awesome, so I don't mind as much.
glacial_queen: (OOC)
So, some of you may have noticed I've been kinda scarce lately. I've been programming an entire weekend-long convention by hand and going a little insane doing it. The con is next weekend and I'll be heading down to NY Thursday night, which means that this week is filled with all of the incredibly tiny, stupid, nit-picky details that somehow got dumped in my lap--I think while I was napping somewhere.

Therefore, please forgive me for the next week or so for my continued random absence (and thread-drops for which I heartily apologize). Hopefully, I'll be back to my regular pinging-like-crazy by next Wednesday, which will give me a chance to sleep off my HANGOVER OF DOOM (because I intend to drink heavily at the con, dammit) and whatever con-crud I manage to pick up while there.

Also, if you're at all near Rye Brook, New York (about 10 minutes off the CT border) and want to come to a convention and meet Tanya Huff (and, y'know, me), come to Lunacon! It's awesome. I promise.

*goes off to nap*
glacial_queen: (OOC)
Sorry to everyone I dropped threads with yesterday. The NyQuil snuck up on me in a big way. I'm still feeling moderately wretched (I think it's a mutated strain of H1N1, but my husband assures me it's just a cold. Bah!) so the dropped threads are pretty much going stay dropped. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be a functional human being again.

Just wanted to keep folks in the loop. Excuse me, I'm just going to go waste away tragically on my couch. Also, I'm concerned about the amount of affection my kittens are showing me today. I think they know I'm weak and are waiting to thin me from the herd.
glacial_queen: (OOC)
So, this weekend I have a wedding. This means that for the next few days, I'm going to be running around frantically, trying to finish up last minute stuff before we run away to the Cape. Thus, sudden SP warnings are in effect, because I might have to suddenly run away and get my stupd dress altered even though when I tried it on before bringing it home two weeks ago, the store assured me it fit perfectly.


Anyway, come Thursday, Karla will be turning into a wee Arcerian kitten (basically a white tiger), but before then, my pings may be sporadic at best. Sorry.
glacial_queen: (OOC)
So, I will be traipsing off to the wilds of Canada (Montreal to be exact) for Worldcon '09 tomorrow. That means Karla will be gone probably through Wednesday of next week. If it's cool, she had handwavily contacted all of her teachers (not Darren, though hopefully someone will tell Geoffrey if he's back next week) to let them know she'd been summoned home.

I'll be around for part of today, so I can still pick up pings and whatnot. And then it's off to Worldcon, where, sadly, there will be no OSC for me to kick. Oh well, the burdens we must all bear.
glacial_queen: (Default)
So, Karla is returning to Kaeleer for purposes of plot and mun-availability this weekend. She'll be back on Monday. However, since my niece is coming up from Florida to visit this month, she'll be turning right back around and returning to Kaeleer on Friday the 10th, returning Monday the 20th at the latest.

Also, since we're driving down to Virginia to meet up with her halfway, we'll be taking her to visit DC on the way back up. We'll probably be spending a good part of the 11th in DC. I don't know about timing or scheduling yet, but would anyone in the DC area be interested in possibly getting together for lunch?

Also: is anyone else going to Worldcon in August?

SP for me

Sorry to folks (especially to anyone I'm leaving in Kaeleer), but I've got to run. I shuld be back later this evening though. Until then, enjoy the unicorns.
